3 Steps to Achieve a Goal
We must have a theme, a goal, a purpose in our lives. If you don’t know where you’re aiming, you don’t have a goal. My goal is to live my life in such a way that when I die, someone can say, she cared. This is of course a beautiful goal which was set by the famous writer Mary Kay Ash.
